Paleo Strawberry Shortcake

Hubby and I took a jeep ride today and came across a place selling fresh strawberries, so we pulled right in there and picked up a quart.  On the menu tonight was Paleo Strawberry Shortcake.

Lazy Sunday and Cookies

This is Tiger, one of our kitties enjoying the outdoors!

 Hello!!!   :)

Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these into bars, instead of cookies!  Much faster!!

The recipe comes from

Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup vegan palm oil shortening (I used coconut oil, soft, not melted)
2 T. honey
1 T. vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

**I added some shredded coconut too.

I mixed it all up in a bowl and put it in a 8 X 8 glass dish.  Baked at 350 degrees for 20 mins.   Yumm!!

Goat Changes

A lot of changes have taken place in May at Striker's barn, and not all that I have liked, of course, but in a perfect world, I would of made other changes instead....... start things off, I had posted about putting Chloe to sleep because of her not being able to get around and then bringing in the Boer.  Then we bought Rose, a 3 yr young pygmy doe that lost her babies the last 2 years also, she is sweet!  Taffeta wasn't getting along with her that well.  Taffeta was the queen, but with her attitude we went and bought 2 Nigerian Dwarf wethers and the woman we bought them from gave us a free one to save it from the sale barns....thank YOU, Brenda!!  

We get everyone home and think there will be peace in the barn once again.....NOPE...that would be too easy....Taffeta would not get along at all......just her nature and as much as I LOVED her, I knew it would never work out.   Taffeta went back to Jill her previous owner, so now if Taffeta gets lonely, Jill is going to buy her a chicken.....

Now onto the photo's.....(yesterday I went out to take some other ones and the battery was dead in the to buy a back up soon...battery that is.....  ;)

Rose in the front and Taffeta in the back.....just love this photo.  Really sad that it didn't work out with Taffeta!!



Now introducing the boys, we have had them for a week and they are 9 weeks young.  The one on the left is Jasper with Moose.

and this is Jack

Moose and Jasper

Jasper, Moose trying to fly.... :) and Rose.   Jack is in the background.

Rose has her moments with them, but we are trying to get them together to bond slowly.

Will post more photo's later!!    Hugs!!
